Happy Birthday, Logan!

Little JCrew has a special aunt that has a birthday today!

My sister is an amazing person. I was three years old when she came into the family. I was so in love with her! I wanted to feed her and do everything for her. She had a strong love for animals. Every Christmas she asked for an Ostrich. One year I think it was a Zebra!

Her love for animals has lead to her to a dream job. She's manager at Kindred Spirits Sanctuary in Florida. The sanctuary takes in farm animals that are abused, neglected or unwanted and gives them a home that is loving and caring. Each animal has a special story.

A new project my sister has done to raise money for the sanctuary is to have the animals create paintings given in exchange for donations. In the spring of this year, the sancutary took in chicks that were bought by a church for an Easter service. The chicks had only one purpose and the church did not think of what they would have to do with the chicks after their purpose was served. These chicks made a special painting for Little JCrew. It is being displayed in his room.

The chicks aren't the only ones that paint! Pearl the pig, Owen the blind calf, Euree the Palamino, and Butterscotch the goat are just a few. Butterscotch was born without the use of her hind legs and has a make-shift wheelchair made out of PVC pipes that helps her get around. All the proceeds from her paintings are going towards a new wheelchair for her. The new wheelchair will allow her to manuever in the pasture with the other goats.

To view the other paintings, you can go to the Facebook page for Kindred Spirits.

I coudn't ask for a better sister or a better aunt for my little guy. I hope she has a wonderful day today. She deserves a day as special as she is.
